Human Nature
Online Film and Discussion


This new documentary explores a scientific discovery called CRISPR that gives people the power to change what it means to be human.

“Every ‘Oh wow’ in ‘Human Nature’ is matched by an ‘Oh no’ somewhere down the line. Together, these two competing emotions – excitement and unease – make for one pretty fascinating documentary.” – Ken Jaworowski, NY Times
